SSAS are regulated by the Pensions Regulator.

A pension is a long term investment, the fund value may fluctuate and can go down. Your eventual income may depend upon the size of the fund at retirement, future interest rates and tax legislation.

Information is based on our current understanding of taxation legislation and regulations. Any levels and bases of, and reliefs from taxation, are subject to change.

The value of pensions and the income they produce can fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you invested.

What is a SSAS?

SASS — also known as a Small Self Administered Scheme (SSAS) — is a company pension scheme, the members of which are usually directors and key employees of the sponsoring employer.

Whilst subject to the same rules relating to contributions and benefits as a normal company pension scheme, SASS’ schemes have considerably more flexibility and control over the investment policies and the scheme’s underlying assets.

Other considerations are that only one scheme is permitted per employer, normally the scheme should have less than 12 members and there can be limits on the amount of investment.
